Episode 232. We read the first half of the comic series Die, from Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans. In 1991, a group of teenagers play a tabletop RPG, and find themselves sucked into the dangerous fantasy world. Decades after their escape, they return to try and find the gamemaster who didn’t make it out. Time has passed as normal in the world of Die, and these adults have to face the consequences of the desperate choices they made in their youth, especially as they realize this may be a place where other real-world players have become trapped.
